we where lucky enough to have arrived just as a couple of local festivals where getting underway..the square I was assured was as vibrant as it was then all year round not to sure about that one, but I believe it could still be a pleasant place to sit during the quiet months in the town.

They say what happens in Puerto De La Cruz, stays in Puerta De La Cruz! Trus enough, you may have a cozy table in your back garden to sit in on a sunny Sunday.....but what matters is also being able to watch the world go by ....there is Maria with her Puppy, there is a couple on their first date,...

Lots of shops and restaurants around this place- look out for some bakeries which sell some really nice chocolate swirl pastries for just a euro!

Excellent rendezvous point and handy Taxi rack. Good to sit and watch the world go by. Little hassle from the African Hawkers. Lots of places to explore and eat within a few hundred metres. It should form the centre of any visit to PDLC.

If you don' t visit it, you haven't seen Puerto de la Cruz by night at all ! Whatever your taste is, you will find a variety of restaurants, pubs, bars, gelaterias, pizzerias nearby!
